    your looking for ska. ska came before reggae and punk. it went through 3 waves, the 50s, 80s, and 90s.

    first wave - bob marleys early stuff, burning spear, skatalites, desmond dekker
    second wave - specials, slackers, toasters, untouchables
    third wave (more likely to like this one) - streetlight manifesto, mustard plug, catch 22, pilfers, slackers, long beach dub allstars

    noFX is NOT ska. thought so long and thanks for the shoes did have a little ska inspiration in it.

    Pepper and Slightly Stoopid are easily the two best reggae/rock bands out there.
    Easy Star All-Stars' Dub side of the moon is a really good pink floyd reggae cover album, you should check that out

    hell yea, definitely lsiten to augustud pablo, king tubby and desmond dekker.
  19. Julian Marley!!! the lesser known son of Bob, very creative
  20. If you looking for Reggae/Rock you should check out O.A.R. Theyre not reggae in traditional sense but they have a good reggae feel to a lot of their songs.
